Cocoa and Cram
Get REady for finals
Ever been stressed about final exams? EVHS students have had the benefit for 13+ years to have a positive atmosphere in which to review for final exams in December.
Cocoa and Cram was started by Susan Scott (retired 2012) and Eric Mandeville (current EVMS principal). In days preceding and during final exams, students have been welcome to come to the library and review for finals for a couple hours after school. To encourage attendance, hot cocoa and cookies (often from the culinary dept.) were provided. In more recent years, alternatives to cookies have also been provided. National Honor Society has provided tutors in all subject areas and often the counseling center provided stress-reducing activities (stress balls, coloring pages) for much needed brain breaks. To accommodate different study preferences, there is usually a "quiet" room for independent focus, and a more interactive space for group study/review. There is something cozy about watching the snow fall outside with a cup of cocoa and a textbook!
Devil Duels/Homecoming Week
Devil Duels, started in 2019, is a Homecoming assembly designed to involve every student at Eagle Valley High school to achieve the ultimate teamwork group project. There are 52 committees of 15-20 students per committee and 1 teacher advisor per committee. Students within each committee utilize critical thinking skills by applying the class theme of Homecoming to their committee objective. For instance, the class song committee is assigned to create the lyrics to an existing song and melody. The lyrics must incorporate a positive message about said class and promote the class’ cooperating team. It is the job of the song committee to then teach their entire class (approximately 200 students) the devised song, so that it can be performed by all at the Devil Duels Assembly. Some of the other competition for the committees are:
Cookie decorating contests
Design a class t-shirt
Seniors and Sophomores vs Juniors and Freshmen
One of the biggest aims of Devil Duels is to involve the community in what has become the lost tradition and the meaning of Homecoming. Devil Duels brings the community in to this culminating event by business sponsorships, community judges, and active participation in events like parades and bonfire.

8th Grade Showcase
Attention future Students and Parents!
Come check out our “Devilish Details”
WHEN: Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022 @ 6:00pm
WHERE: Eagle Valley High School
Come and learn more about how Eagle Valley High School (EVHS) is the embodiment of our mission and vision statement to “EXPECT MORE”.
With a current enrollment of more than 1000 students, EVHS is large enough to offer academic rigor through college-level classes and athletic prowess through sports and activities that a larger high school offers, yet small enough to maintain a personal experience for each and every one of our students.
In order to help make the transition easier for both you and your student, we would like to welcome you to the EVHS 8th Grade Showcase with presentations by administrators, counselors , teachers, and students at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, March 2nd..
We will share some ideas about how to help your student be successful in high school, philosophies of EVHS, extra-curricular options, how to earn credits toward graduation, policies and procedures at the high school, tour the school, and answer any questions you may have. Please join us in the auditorium at EVHS to begin the transition into high school.
Our goal is to provide individual attention to each family, so please feel free to contact the EVHS Counseling Office to schedule an appointment for a private tour and to receive more information on our academics, athletics and activities.
High Five and Free Hug Friday
When Greg Doan came to EVHS 11 years ago, he started a new tradition that is still going strong. On the first Friday of every Fall, students from Student Council meet all of the students coming in that morning and start their day off with a high five and/or hug. This gives a good start to the school year and reconnects everyone.
Each graduating class's senior class composites are hung in Legacy Hall each year so alumni can always come back and view them and current students can go back and find pictures of their families. The pictures start from 1941 and continue on by class until he current year. The composite for th year 2012 does not exist due to an issue with the photographer that year.
Our Junior and Senior Prom is Saturday, April 30th at the Hythe Resort in Lionshead Village in Vail, CO. The dance is from 8:00-11:00 PM. We wanted to send out a few reminders about Prom 2022. We are happy to note we do not have any Covid restrictions in place and that we do not have a limit on the number of students who can attend the event.
If an EVHS Junior or Senior plans on taking a date who is an underclassman, a student who attends a different high school, or is a recent graduate, they will need to complete and submit a Dance Guest Request Form. Forms are also located in the front office. Forms need to be fully completed, including signatures from the other school, before they are submitted to the front office. Completed and signed forms are due Thursday, April 28th to Ms. Wiens, with no exceptions.
Prom tickets will go on sale Monday, April 25th and will be sold through Friday, April 29th. We will not sell tickets at the dance unless prior approval was granted by Administration or Mr. Little. Tickets will be sold outside the front office during A and B lunches, before school, and after school. Individual tickets cost $45. Students will nominate royalty, and will place song requests, when they purchase their ticket. Voting for Prom King and Queen will take place at the dance. Drinks and dessert will be served at the dance.
The Hythe will offer valet parking for $10 the night of the dance to attendees of the EVHS Prom. Students may also park at the Lionshead parking structure.
If you have any questions, or if you need to schedule an alternative time to purchases a ticket, please contact Mr. Little at douglas.little@eagleschools.
Senior "Hold My Hand" board
Because of COVID we had this as an alternative to our Senior Banquet Night. We had food trucks come in after graduation rehearsal and we did the spirit tunnel with parents and offered food from the food trucks. Each Senior is given a ticket to get a meal from any truck of their chose and the families are able to purchase from each or all of the trucks. All of the families were able to spend time together in anticipation of the event to come on Saturday. So it isn't much of a tradition...yet...but it will be in years to come.
Each year students, faculty, and staff at Eagle Valley High School embark upon a quest to make a wish come true. In partnership with Make-A-Wish Colorado, our community has adopted a local child to support while they battle a critical illness. Our wish kid this year is Gypsum’s own Jose, who is eleven years old and very funny. Jose loves video games, all types of candy, hanging out with his family, and the color blue. Jose hopes to become a Neurosurgeon one day. For the past year Jose has been battling brain cancer.
Starting Wednesday, February 10th and running through Wednesday, February 16th, Eagle Valley High School will host our annual Wish Week celebration to raise money for Jose’s wish to go to Disneyworld. This year we are excited to welcome back our traditional Wish Week celebration, which will include; opening and closing student assemblies, game nights, sports nights, and our annual Winter School Dance. Each event we host during Wish Week will raise money for Jose’s wish to spend a family vacation at Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida.
We need your help to make Jose’s wish come true. Joan Mazak, the Founder of Make-A-Wish Colorado, noted that “when a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope... A wish transforms the lives of children, their families, volunteers, supporters, medical professionals, and entire communities.” By donating to the link below you can help grant Jose’s wish. Sharing this link with friends and family will not only help grant Jose’s wish, but will share the mission and hope Make-A-Wish provides children who are battling a critical illness. In addition, all funds raised beyond our $7,500.00 goal will go to support other wishes for children in need. Please donate to Jose’s wish:
Support Jose’s Wish Link
Together we can help a child in need. A wish is an opportunity for us to provide normalcy, hope, and joy to a child who has faced and battled uncertainty and loss of hope. I know together we can make a big difference in Jose’s life, who at this time needs our help.
Thank you for your support,
EVHS Student Council
